What Bad Luck! I got reborn into another life, and Now I am a Side Character! (Part 1)

Hello guys gals and everyone else that visits my island! Today I decided to start writing a Isekai like story! What would happen if I got Isekaid?! Well here is my story! Including a super long title!

Intro

I never thought it would happen to me, but then I died! Everything went black when I saw that cute little cat, it’s skin was so black and it made the cutest meow! I remember .. falling. From a stairway perhaps? Man I am never lucky! Yet then I heard it’s voice.. Kami of the new world.. the voice said I would be reborn… there was no real shape but I imagined him like a moose..or maybe a powerful stag… something forestry and wild.. and pride was in his voice.

He told me I would be reborn in a new world. I told him , I like me I wanna be myself. He told me a girl named Elle accidently magicked her soul away and I would get her body, but I could take a boon into my next life. So since I wanted to be myself.. I asked to be myself.. but amplified! Isekai characters usually get a huge stat upgrade.. so I just asked for that. Just upgrades so I would be be.. I have a pretty good brain on me.. so if this Elle is magic.. I bet it will turn out fine! I just forgot.. how unlucky I can be!

Day 1
Morning

Dear diary.. I woke up in a strange bed today! Lot’s of clutter on the floor, drawings and some runic things , which I think are spells. I woke up with a strange headache.. but I guess having your soul mushed into a new body that sort of thing is expected. Anyway I decided to get up filled with energy, I am going to be an overpowered and beloved heroine and make lots of money from quests and live in a mansion! At least that was what I thought at the time.

I got up out of bed and tried to search for a bathroom… now let me tell you Isekai shows do never really explain this well.. but baths are hard to find in medieval times. A bar of soup is even harder to find! The girl I am now does seem to have a lot of rose water though.. I guess it is used to mask the scents.. when I tried sniffing to see how bad the damage is I noticed something though my skin was blue?! Nani!

So upon further investigation I also discovered there was also a pillow stuck to my head. While stepping away all flustered I accidently stepped on my tail.. which I did not know I have and I fell into a mirror and broke it.. I wasn’t very hurt though.. because I hit it with a horn.. which did break off.. the pillow stuck to my head was skewered on the other..I somehow know the other will go back.  Which is good because soon after I after I fell of the stairs, trying to find another mirror.. apparently I have hoof-like feet. It’s not exactly a hoof.. but it’s not like the human flat foot either. So with two broken horns.. and these features.. I think I might be something close to a Tiefling.. or maybe like a Draenei from World of Warcraft… they are about the same thing anyway. Well at least my skin colour combines nicely with pink!

Day 1
After Noon

I was surprised.. and slightly injured,  as I managed to get dressed from my sleeping gown. Which wasn’t easy! I can hardly see anything! I had pretty bad eyesight when I was human..but this was ridiculous…that’s when I realised that bastard Moose guy must have amplified that trait of me!  I hoped opticians were thing in the city! I also found a coin purse apparently Elle had some money! So I decided to go out and see if I can get my eye problem fixed.

Now while Elle doesn’t smell that bad, I guess it’s a Tiefling thing, the same can not be said for the human males at least I assume that’s what they were.. obviously with my eyesight this impaired it is impossible to verify. As I was stumbling around someone asked me if  everything was alright. The blob looked blond and sounded female. Could this be my fated encounter.. where I meet my side character?! I explained her that I had bad eyesight and lost my aid. She offered to take me to a man who made glasses. I guess that is a relief.Now those glasses cost me nearly all my coins..I am not sure if I have enough for food now.. but at least I will be overpowered so finding a job should not be too troubling.


My estimations proved to be correct. The blond blob person was a human lady. She wears this regal blue coat and a fancy scabbard. She waited for me , in case these glasses would not help, also she was curious about my species as she never saw a Tiefling before. She said she was new to this place, having only been in town for a couple of days.

Her home town is far away and apparently does not have the diversity. I guess it means Elle is not from this town originally either.. or she would have seen more right? I had not seen any blue blobs on the way here. So I told her. I just rented the place.. I lived in and arrived yesterday.. but in the move my glasses had gone missing. She said she could show me around town… she definitely is my fated encounter. I bet we are going to be a popular ship! Though I never experienced that pausing moment with the hearts and the glow. Maybe that is anime only?

She told me her name was Maine. She seems to be a high level hero because as soon as we stepped out the store I got robbed of my last few coins! She raced after the thief, which was a Half Elf Rogue..they seem to have been acquainted “You Again?” She asked? Which was followed by him apparently making playful remarks at her “We got to stop meeting like this” “Seriously you might starve me if you keep stopping me.. wouldn’t you be sad if I died”. She and him bantered for a while.. before he gave her my nearly empty coin purse back.

She told him, designating him as Rho, to join the guild that he could make some honest coin. “He asked where the fun was in that”. I got a bit excited and said I might join the guild. Maine snickered a bit and told me that I might need to get better at staying out of harm’s way first. Then we hurt a scream…. This was it.. the moment where I could say a cool one-liner “Maybe Danger is just drawn to me”  or maybe something sugoi like “It is harm that should stay out of my way”… but Maine totally stole my spotlight. “Maybe it’s me, who is drawn to danger.. if that’s the case.. let’s get dangerous!’ She totally stole that from Dark Wing Duck! Anyway as we ran towards the sound I tripped on my tail and I think I hit my head on a trashcan!

Day 1
Evening

When I woke up it  was already sunset was upon us. I looked around but neither Rho or Maine were around. The screaming had stopped as well instead I could hear.. singing? Not like the beautiful kind.. but you know the songs that those sunburnt brits in shiny t-shirts sing when people  have chased a round leather object for 90 minutes. Why is my mind describing like that? I know the name.. but see it in my head all analytical like?! Is it a result of my good stats?! I could not linger on it .. we had a villain to defeat.. by now it has certainly captured my new friend and I must save her! This is the moment where the heroine will save her dashing young companion and they start traveling together! Let’s go!

Perhaps I have a very high wisdom modifier.. or perhaps my perception check is quite high despite my eyesight.. but it did not take me long to locate Maine. Apparently she was the reason people were singing. They lift her up and sing the song of a hero or something. Saying she vanquished a servant of the Dark Order. Apparently this Rho guy helped.. but then escaped before he could be arrested.

I finally met up with Maine in the bar and she forgot my name! I guess it might be the Tsundere.. like trope.. or well what is it called.. the one where the Heroine is invisible to her crush until she can prove her worth!?! Of course that would not happen in the first episode! She gave me on of the drinks people bought her and we talked a bit. She seems to be hiding something. At one point Rho showed up.. kind of disguised he apologized for stealing for me… but not before the two had this weird epic stare down for a moment they did not even seem to move at all. I kinda felt ignored.

I should report to the hero guild .. because apparently my money will only buy me like a weeks worth of food. So at least I have plans for tomorrow. Of course this is the perfect place to get a mysterious encounter.. someone who hands me a note.. “I know what you are, meet me at the docks tomorrow after sunset’ It will be amazing and I will finally shine. I also discovered that as a Tiefling I have an impressive blatter.. it was late at evening when I first had to make a sanitary stop… knowing this a medieval fantasy world though..

I knew it wasn’t going to be pleasant. Even expecting the worst it did not disappoint. If you think what Shou Tucker did to his daughter was disgusting, you have never seen a medieval toilet. Well it’s just a box.. with a hole.. but at least they had booths with locks in the tavern. When trying to open it I accidently dropped the key into the hole though… On the plus side I got some practice with my tail ………After a good wash up I got back to my company though.

Maine looked a bit shocked as Rho was trying to comfort her when I got back. He is acting super awkward for some reason it doesn’t seem to help her a lot and she calls him Baka for not understanding. Shouldn’t see call me stupid for being trapped in the bathroom?!  Maybe she is not my encounter but like a senpai?! I did not know what to think so inquired to her state of mind. She said it was nothing.. but I pushed on!  “I might not see a lot but this I can tell” .. reluctantly she shown a note a mysterious stranger just gave her.

It read “I know about you, meet me in Blackshroom Forest tomorrow when the clock strikes twelve times at night. I blurted out “Well technically he means the day after tomorrow then” after which I pushed my glasses back on my face… “Wait that is not a very main character thing to do, they do not nag about the details they rush in”.. Maine kind of ignored me and just got up and dashed out. …. Wait … “she helped a helpless character, had a flirty encounter, defeated a monster and got a plot hook onto the next episode?” Could it be?!  I AM A SIDE CHARACTER?

Day 1
Night

More investigation is needed,  however a continues streak of misfortune  has made this quest for knowledge rather impossible this day. I never was a lucky girl on earth either but it seems a lot worse now. Maine seems to have her secrets to.. but if she is the lead character of this story..perhaps my key to getting a life.. lies with her.. or a way to get home! Tomorrow I shall set out to the guild she is part of .. if I can join I am sure I can force myself in a role inside her life. I never heard of persons being reincarnated as a side character before.. so I am sailing blind here.. I need some money first..so tomorrow morning I will go to the guild, tomorrow afternoon I shall do a quest and then I will go to the forest to discover more about Maine. Now it’s time for bed.. but it will be a uncomfy night because I just spilled ink all the over my matra….

  1. You sound like a protagonist to me!
    Let me just say I would definitely watch this and for some reason I feel like I would review it with Crow. Sounds like out the sort of story we always end up collabing on.

    1. I could see you reviewing this with Crow as well, if this was an actual anime. For now a written imagination every once in a while will have to do…but anime creators if you are out there.. I am willing to work together.. and I am willing to do it cheap :p

      1. I am a Dudette.. and cheap is only relative! I mean I am willing to work for them cheaply..but I’d have to get a nice apartment in Japan as well… you know to communicate better and all. With low income obviously I can not afford rent so they have to rent it for me…. but I am not telling them yet! Luckily they never read three comments deep!

      2. It’s not like I am offended so no worries, I do prefer Dudette or Gal over guy but you can call me whatever you want . Dudette feels more on brand for me though and I prefer it for personal reason I guess :p
